Vanity Fair’s 2011 Hollywood Issue

In: Donovan, Movies

One of the magazine covers I look forward to most during Awards Season, is Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood Issue. Since 1995, the cover has highlighted Hollywood and the big players, fresh new faces or the “It” actors currently generating buzz. For their 17th annual issue, Vanity Fair has gone back to basics and to old school glamor. To be specific, the glamour of 1930s Shanghai, an era of smoky, alluring elegance.

“We had the gentlemen looking dashing in black tie, whilst the ladies were radiant in spring’s gowns—from Gucci to Yves Saint Laurent—and glittering with diamonds from Chanel and other arbiters of glamour.” – Style director Jessica Diehl

In the past, they’ve sometimes featured teenagers, nudity and even penguins. Yup. penguins made it in 2007. This year, they’ve focused on the most exciting actors and actresses of the moment. Taking stage front and center (or in this case the left side) are Oscar co-hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway. Joining them on the coveted section are Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal. Traditionally, Annie Leibovitz has taken the group picture, but this year photographer Norman Jean Roy shot the cover. The whole process took two days and was shot in New York and Los Angeles.

Others included on the cover include Jennifer Lawrence, Anthony Mackie, Olivia Wilde, Jesse Eisenberg, Mila Kunis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones, Garrett Hedlund, Noomi Rapace and Robert Duvall. WTF? What is he doing there? On a side note, I’m glad Noomi Rapace, the star of the Swedish version of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and Mila Kunis made the cut. Check out the full cover, along with all previous Hollywood Issue covers below.

see past covers and full 2011 cover after the jump has released their Top 99 Women of 2011 and the woman on top is Gossip Girl’s 23 year old Blake Lively – nice choice! She makes a big jump from number 85 last year.

In the last couple years, Blake Lively has gone from TV star to movie star and Fashion icon, gracing the cover of countless magazines and having starred in The Town and the upcoming summer blockbuster hit, The Green Lantern. In the film, she’s the love interest of People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive 2010, Ryan Reynolds. Lively may be in the spotlight, but she knows how to handle it. No rehab or scandals for this beauty! The only noteworthy non-career related story for her this year was the big (amicable) breakup between her and her Gossip Girl costar, Penn Badgley. Perhaps her new single status was a draw for men to move her up on the list as well.

The stunning Mila Kunis took the number two spot on the list, also recently single after having dated Macaulay Culkin since 2002. Recently, she was photographed chatting with Glee’s Chord Overstreet after the SAG awards, who actually looks like a hot version of the Home Alone star. Forget “Bitch stole my look,” more like “Bitch stole my bitch!” in Culkin’s eyes!

Who else is in the top 10 on this list of 99? Find out below.

Stupid Sh*t Gay People Say

In: Patrick, Totally GAY!, Videos

YouTube sensation, Davey Wavey posted a video yesterday about some of the “Stupid Sh*t Gay People Say“. The post was in response to a video he had done previously, talking about some of the thing that straight people say.

In this latest video, he addresses the topic of gays trying to turn straight people gay, the term “straight-acting”, gays hating on gays by making fun of how feminine they are or how high pitched their voice may be (as in the case of Davey Wavey), etc.

Watch the video and share your thoughts on the topic. Is there too much gay on gay hate still going on these days? Is Davey Wavey right in saying that this is just a reflection on one’s own insecurities?

Gay music video parody master Ryan James Yezak has just released his parody to Britney Spears’ monster hit, “Hold It Against Me“. If you checked out my Top 10 Gay Parodies of 2010, you’d know that his videos were five out of the ten I included in the list – he’s really good at what he does.

Yezak always releases a video announcing what his next parody will be, and he did just that a week ago. Needless to say, I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what he’d come up with for this one. He had informed everyone that a fierce dancer by the name of Donna Hood, who had made appearances in a couple of his previous videos, would be starring as Britney in the video.

Although it’s well made and he tries some things he hasn’t before, it’s not my favorite. I feel like he definitely has moved away from his usual gay music video parodies in this one and instead just made his own interpretation of what he would make the music video look like if he was directing Spears’ video. I mean, I don’t blame him for wanting to make himself more marketable as a director by not focusing only on gay videos…but I just didn’t enjoy it as much. There’s a world of difference between this one and the entertainment value of his parody for Katy Perry’s “Peacock“, for example. See for yourself.

First Look: Rihanna’s S&M Music Video

In: Music, Tyrell

With photos surfacing all week, everyone has been highly anticipating the video for Rihanna’s hot track S&M off of her album Loud. She decided to debut the video exclusively on VEVO at midnight and boy, did it go a flutter on the social network waves.

This video is nothing but a trip. With all the outfit and scene changes, your senses will be overloaded with excitement. One of my favorite parts is Perez Hilton’s cameo as her dog slave in pink pants, ‘peeing’ on a fire hydrant. Amazing. She also has people taped to walls with security cameras taking in the view and she rolls around in a cute colorful outfit while having her legs and hands tied.

The video was directed by Ms. Melina who also directed Ne-Yo’s video for his hit Closer. The halusenagetic video is amazing and definitely ranks up there with one of my favorite music videos out there right now. So what are you waiting for… check it out!

Model Behavior: Andrew Stetson

In: Donovan, Fashion, Totally GAY!

Say “bonjour” to this week’s “Model Behavior” featured male hotness. This 6’1″ stud hails from Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Andrew Stetson was discovered at the age of 19 by a modeling agent for the NAM Agency. Norwayne Anderson spotted Andrew from across the bar when he noticed his lips and eyes and solicited him to become a model. The rest, they say, is history, EH.

Once signed, he started to book jobs right away for catalogues, runway and editorial jobs in Milan, Paris and New York. Stetson has appeared in ad campaigns for Armani, Zara, Levi’s, H&M, Dolce & Gabbana and Bloomingdales. In August 2006, he signed a three-year deal to be the face of Calvin Klein’s “Euphoria” fragrance.

As successful as he is in the fashion industry, Andrew intends to return to his first love. Prior to being discovered, Stetson was a carpenter and once he’s done with modeling, he wants to return to carpentry.

“I’m making the most of modelling. But to be honest, I would rather go back to carpentry. I love carpentry. It’s not work to me. And it keeps me grounded and balanced. There are not a lot of models who have something else to fall back on.”

Interesting. When he returns to carpentry, I’ll know who to contact when I build my dream home. Currently Stetson is represented by Wilhelmina New York, Premier Model Management (London), MGM (Paris) and Why Not (Milan). Check out the hottest pics I could find of him below. Be forewarned, you’ll be all hot and bothered from his insane sexiness.

I am the biggest fan of CW shows and am even fortunate enough to work on one. But, there is one show I have never gotten in to and its running on its 2nd season now. What is it you ask? Well Adam, you may now pick your mouth up off the floor as I announce that I do not watch The Vampire Diaries.

It has nothing to do with the smoldering hot men in the cast or the elusive and sexy storylines. It has to do with the simple fact that I never caught on to the vampire craze. From Twilight to True Blood, I couldn’t find myself enjoying a little neck biting to save my life.

However, tonight while watching two of my fave CW shows 90210 and Gossip Girl, I caught a promo spot for the second half of the Vampire Diaries season and well, it made me a believer and maybe made me want to catch up and watch it a little bit. The sexy promo has a clever play on words and some sexy, sexy shots.

Check out the hot promo spot for TVD after the jump.

Art photographer Tyler Shields just had his hands full in a new photo shoot with hottie Alex Pettyfer who is starring in the upcoming movies I Am Number Four and Beastly. The photo shoot found the models getting little bumped and bruised, but the end result was worth every scratch.

Tyler Shields got his start directing movies but is now a famed art photographer working with Hollywood’s hottest young celebrities. In this shoot, Tyler asked Alex to put on a playboy face and enjoy his evening with two beautiful women. They slapped him, kissed him and maybe even whipped him a little. In the photos, it looks like Alex really enjoyed himself.

Tyler is working on his first photography book titled The Dirty Side of Glamor. After checking out his portfolio, it looks like a coffee table book I could definitely add to my collection.
